Blink-182 and Morrissey producer Jerry Finn has been taken off life support after suffering a massive brain hemorrhage last month. According to a post on the Prosoundweb forum reprinted on Morrissey-Solo.com, Finn's family made the decision on Saturday.

"Even though he did make snail-like improvement these past 31 days, he is not any better for words and has not had any consistency in the tests that the medical team have done for him," a close Finn friend wrote on the forum. "At this time the hemorrhage has done massive damage to his body which will leave him severely disabled and in need of acute care for the rest of his life. We know Jerry wouldn't want to live like this in a vegetative state."

Finn, 38, got his start as an engineer in the early 1990s before shifting into production on such albums as Rancid's "...And Out Come the Wolves." Among his best-known production credits are Blink-182's "Enema of the State" and Morissey's "You Are the Quarry." Finn has also worked with Green Day, Bad Religion, Sparta, AFI and the Offspring, among many others.

Finn had also lent production to Morrissey's upcoming "Years of Refusal," which has been bumped from a fall release to Feb. 2, 2009, according to Truetoyou.net.


For those who aren’t sure about his connection with the band, he produced and mixed Can’t Repeat (and I assume Next To You).

Condolences to his friends and family.

So, he produced and mixed Can't Repeat - what can I say R.I.P. Jerry - Can't Repeat is one of my favorite songs! Thank You - it's great song, wonderful production performance!

Wow I just turned on Offspring radio and Can't Repeat starts playing. This is the first thread I opened after it... weird.

Very sad, my condolences.

A little trivia...he also co-produced Beheaded (1999). Not to mention other great records not mencioned in the article (Sing The Sorrow, Decemberunderground, Blink 182, About Time, Wiretap Scars, etc.).

A truly big loss. RIP Jerry.

Tragic. My condolences for whoever reads, Can't Repeat is an incredible song.

Weird, but I wouldn't worry. Weird situations can occur quite frequently; once I picked up my phone to see if my friend, his friend, my other friend and my other friend's younger brother wanted to play tennis at 2.00 and while the phone was in my hand he rang me with the exact same plan.

I used to work for his management company and I'm really upset to hear he died. I knew he'd been on life support but there's always that little hope that they'll pull through, you know? He was a really cool guy and my heart goes out to his family.

Well, duh.

Can't you just say one nice thing, Jojan? Like you wish he was better, rather than saying you're glad he's dead. You're such a prick sometimes.

RIP Jerry

That's putting it nicely. Sometimes I think some people on here don't think before they open their pie holes.

I've never met the man before, but he still had a pretty big impact on my life. He produced Good Mourning by Alkaline Trio, one of my favorite records. I was also hoping that he would end up producing RAFRAG, (although i was more then happy with Bob Rock's effort). A great loss to the musical world.

(08/22/08) We would like to extend our deepest sympathy to the family of Jerry Finn . We worked with Jerry in the studio many times over the years, and he produced the songs “Can‘t Repeat“ and “Next To You” for our Greatest Hits album. He was a pleasure to be around and we are thankful for the time we were able to spend with him. Jerry left his mark on countless great records, and he will be missed.

RIP, my friend.

Dexter.
